I am Saraswathi Balgam. You can call me “Vani”. I am currently developing unique original animation and live action content under the Dancing Atoms Films banner. Dancing Atoms works with a team of talented creatives, based in Mumbai, London and Los Angeles. My goal is to bridge the gap between Asian and North American storytellers and help bring their stories to global audiences.
I served as the head of Creative Management for Dreamworks Animation in Shanghai, and prior to that I was the Executive Director of Rhythm & Hues Asia, a multiple Academy Award winning Animation and VFX studio.
I am passionate about building a creative collective in India through ASIFA INDIA.
We are passionate about stories and are currently working on two preschool animated TV shows and two animated feature films. We are producing “Return of the Jungle” a Feature film by Vaibhav Studios. We are also working with leading Indian and American Studios.
We have a team of Emmy Award winning producers, and help with Art Direction, Character Design and Visual Storytelling.
I enjoy making Indie films. Here are some clips from my award winning personal projects. The films have been submitted to film festivals.
I have contributed to the production of over 30 tent-pole Hollywood feature films. Here are some projects that I have worked on throughout my career.
I believe Talent is Universal, that we all have the potential to tell our authentic stories. If you would like to know what I am working on, or share some of your work or simply want to connect, then please do get in touch!
